IsDB Youth Empoyability Platform

What is it?

YEP is a knowledge sharing online platform for governments and policy makers, youth-led and youth-focused organizations, donor agencies, civil society organizations, multilateral organizations, private sector entities, and educational entities that focus on youth development, and sheds light on good practice, strategies, and programs, which aim to improve youth employability skills. The Platform is referred to as an employability platform rather than employment as its focus is beyond the discourse of “getting a job” and more about creating a conducive environment and ecosystem, including attitudes, skills, functions and structures required to be in place to perpetuate economic growth. Stay tuned for some exciting COVID-19 Youth Response updates to the Platform coming soon.
